Meditation

by Valerie Dearling



It cannot be measured

by means apparent

for meditation

is not a talent.


Some think they fail

with nothing achieved

there is no failure

do not be deceived.


Some see a white light

while some fall asleep

other see colours

yet others, go deep.


A journey enjoyed

in forest, on sand,

in exotic bazaar

or temple quite grand.


These pictures are just

a means to acquire

a spiritual lift

to light the soul fire.


Never measure or judge,

for we may never know

just how much meditation

can help us to grow.


Angels

SOURROUND ME

Uplift me

Yet ground me

Imbue me sweet feeling

Both lustrous

And healing

Savour

With gratitude

Flavour

This warmth

That is glistening

This joyful

Uplifting

And when

It is over

My then

Bathed in

Clover

Let me not forget

This blessing

I'm met.
